that was not enough to warrant an investigation. there was nothing the fbi could point to which would single him out for special investigation or attention. was this an intelligence failure in wisconsin? >do you think there could have been things done to prevent this attack that were not done? >> i think the fbi late at where the problem was. they're really good at investigating after the fact, after things happen, but we had a delicate balance between people's constitutional right to assemble and express their speech, however weil, but we also have to be board cleaning and look at ideologies that have long histories of -- forward- looking and the ideologies that have long histories of spawning violence. i'm not talking about doing covert operations and people with extremist police, but i think it is important we have an overt monitoring police system on what is causing people to act of violence may. was this an intelligence failure? i do not think it is. but one thing the department of homeland security and the fbi could have done -- where was the warning the that sikhs and muslims have been victim
fbi agent echoed that sentiment. >> the countries of middle east believe there is a disengagement policy by the united states and that lack of leadership there or at least clarity on what our position is causing problems. i, if we all decide to rally around the video as the problem we're going to make a serious mistake and we're going to make i think diplomatic mistakes as we move forward if we think that is the only reason people are showing up at our embassy to conduct acts violence. bill: the romney campaign says the obama administration is failing to throughout that part of the world. heather: there is more trouble brewing between israel and iran as a nightmare scenario could be coming close to reality. prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the iran will be the on the brink of nuclear capabilities in just six months. he use ad metaphor to describe the new emergency and claims that iran is developing nuclear power for peaceful purposes. listen to this. >> denies the holocaust, promises to wipe out israel and engages in terror throughout the world. like timothy mack say walking
's fbi said there was too much doubt to execute. cannot get better than that. we switched one of the folks they said that work wanted a vote for his execution on the board of pardons and paroles. then we were betrayed by the chairman of that board who said his boat was with us and had voted with us in the past, a black former general, who gave as his word and then switched his vote. it was absolutely heartbreaking. where we go from here is we do exactly what kim said troy wanted us to do, we push ahead and end the death penalty. we know troy davis was not the first person who had not killed anybody to be put to death in this country, and will be the last. right now it is on the ballot in california. we asked folks to vote for that proposition if they are in california. and then onto states like ohio and maryland where it will be debated next year. we hope to repeat the victory we saw in connecticut this year. when folks take a hard look at this punishment, and that is what this case has forced the country to do, they tender run into the fact our country has killed innocent peo
. >>shepard: is the f.b.i. in own this and on the ground? >>reporter: there is a lot of confusion of the salt us of the f.b.i. early today, greg palcot reports the f.b.i. was in tripoli but is not yet in benghazi. there is concern that den days of the assault the crime scene was contaminated. so far the f.b.i. has not responded to that. >>shepard: no response to whether the scene is contaminated in benghazi after ten days. >>reporter: you do not need a response to that. >>shepard: one of the stage crew could come up with that answer. >>reporter: the question is whether they have been there, whether the f.b.i. has been able to get on the ground. the answer may well be, no, the continues have continued to deteriorate. >>shepard: but the press was there. >>reporter: we don't have a whole segment to do that? are you going to open up some time? >>shepard: the resolution was there? >>reporter: that is correct, they were. >>shepard: many libyans condemned the attack on the consequence last and 30,000 strong marched through benghazi demanding that militants lay down their arms. the protests aimed at
americans. the fbi has been telling us in the past couple days, their investigation is underway and apparently still underway outside of libya. tensions and security situation is still too difficult in there to put a full team of fbi investigators on the ground according to reports. they're closed about this. what we can confirm. u.s. navy destroyers in the air and aerial drones and they're doing everything they can to try to begin this investigation. what is a very difficult and dangerous landscape. back to you. >> alisyn: greg palkot. thank you so much for that update. let's talk about the military situation in terms of what the security was in the consulate in benghazi. whether or not it was accurate. and catherine herridge has published an article in foxnews.com where she outlined all of the attacks leading up to tuesday at that should have been red flags and meant we were beefing up our security on september 11th. >> as a panoply of attacks, june 6th an ied thrown at the perimeter of the consulate in benghazi. on the 11th the british motorcade came under attack by an rpg. o
. >> the fbi is, has the lead in this investigation. the information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack, that what happened initially was that it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. megyn: we are now awaiting a briefing from the state department on the anti-american protests rocking the middle east and the muslim world. you can bet this question will come up, but what will the state department say? it is now refusing all questions about what happened in libya because it claims an fbi investigation is underway, and it says you have to refer your questions to the justice department, but they won't talk to you either. we are going to have what we can learn from that briefing and catherine herridge whose reporting this is with more of this exclusive just ahead right here. >>> we are also getting new video, riots raging across the globe today, and as the anti-american protests spread beyond north africa and the middle east, it is posing a seriou
to help libyans. gregg: greg palkot joins me by telephone in tripoli. we understand, greg, the fbi is still there on the ground. what is the latest you're hearing? >> reporter: that's right, gregg. we spoke with an official that fbi agent remain in tripoli. we don't have any confirmation that they have yet to reach the scene of the killing that killed ambassador stevens and others in ben dwauz gazi. it is not especially safe. but there are worry that is the crime scene 10 days later could be contaminated. a marine anti-terror fast response team remains in tripoli as well. the embassy is well-guarded amid other questions being raised the night of the killing u.s. military teams were not sent in fast enough and questions about inadequate security at the consulate and maybe not enough attention paid to other attacks happening in benghazi over the past couple months. we've been hearing in our time on the ground here, at least to some degree, the militants, militia very much in charge in benghazi. gregg? gregg: we're hearing there is a protest and counter protest in libya. what can you

"helping." f.b.i. and others are on the ground in the early stages of the investigation. top priority here? find out whether the strike on the consulate was a planned assault by terrorists rather than a rampageing mob angry other antimuslim video. catherine is in washington, dc, first on the reported arrests. >> this afternoon, the intelligence community is trying to knock down the report. this question was put to the state department. i saw the press reports before i came down. i was not able to confirm them. obviously, it would be a good thing if we are moving forward on this. >> the state department confirmed the investigation in benghazi at consulate is led by the libyan authorities with f.b.i. agents on the ground because american citizens are dead. at least publicly the state department remains cautious when it comes to assigning blame. fox is told that two groups are part of the universe of suspects in the libyan attacks affiliated with al qaeda, the affiliate in north africa. one is the lifg, the libyan islamic fighting group banned under qadaffi and the other is a group, too, that
they have nothing knew to report that. and we're told the f.b.i. team to come in to investigate the killing remains here in tripoli. according to all reports they have not reached benghazi amidst new concerns in tampering with the crime scene in benghazi and new concerns that the bad guys might be getting away. this militia crackdown means that the militants, possible suspects are being forced out of their bases maybe to parts unknown. back to you. >> gregg: thank you very much. >>> now to pakistan where anti-american demonstrateders are taking to the streets yet again. the peaceful crowd chanting and holding signs reading down with america and israel. there were no reports of violence, but this comes after days of riots and dozens of people killed and clashes with police around the country. >> gregg: in nigeria, a bomber killing two people and injuring dozens more. his target was a mosque but a gate stopped him from actually causing more death and destruction. witnesses say the car bomber slammed his car into the fence and then detonated his explosives into the parking lot. they say the tw
for two days. he was convicted in 2009 for bank fraud. we're told the fbi has contacted him because of possible threats against him. we're told he's not under investigation right now. >> brian, thanks very much. brian todd working this story. less than two years ago we watched as these kinds of protests spread across north africa and the middle east. protesters fighting to overthrow dictators and regimes. fast forward to today. we're seeing these same countries erupt in violence anti-american protests. let's bring in bobby gauche, editor at large for "time" magazine. he wrote this week's cover story "the agents of outrage," an excellent article, bobby. thanks very much. let me read a line from your article. the arab spring replaced the harsh order of hated dictators with a flowering of neophyte democracies. but these governments with weak mandates evershifting loyalties and poor security forces have made the region a more chaotic and unstable place, a place more susceptible than ever to rogue provocateurs fo meanting violent upheavals usually in the name of faith. the bottom line qu
have been trying to gather the facts and did not want to get ahead of the f.b.i. investigation. >> shep: the polls are indicating that the president has taken a hit on foreign policy, ed. >> absolutely. he's doing better on the economy against mitt romney. but another poll shows his ap handling foreign policy, it's down to 49%. disapproval is up to 46%. that suggests a weakness there in part because of what's happened in the last week or so. and that's why the romney campaign is jumping on it. take a listen. >> the american people will judge him on the fact, are we more influential around the world and we are not. >> interesting, because before the argument about are you better off four years from now was about the economy. you see the romney campaign adjusting it to national security. their spokesman was the president has not only taken out key al-qaeda leaders, but point out they believe mitt romney was the one who jumped in and commented on all this violence a little too soon. >> shep: ed henry in coral gables. as mentioned, the secretary of state weighed in on this and hillary clint
, like why hasn't the fbi been able to get in there. how is it that cnn can contaminate a crime scene and take crucial evidence? the fact that an fbi agent can't be in there yet is a crime in and of itself. this administration has a lot to answer for. they want the foreign policy to be the election policy and now it's front and center. >> eric: is the administration lying? is there a coverup? >> no, i don't think they are lying at all. i think their response is less than commanding. the first information you get from a crisis overseas is imperfect, wrong or it will change or a few days. it is not a question, that there were late to rolls release on friday afternoon, an update that, yes, this was a planned attack. but the defining issue is here the security of the compound. we know that the british ambassador, the united nations office and the red cross office in benghazi had been attacked recently, prior to the attack and the murder of our wonderful ambassador there. but the equivalent what have it costs to keep one member in afghanistan half a year is the protection we gave the consu
in a vehicle he parked in front of the bar. >> credit is due to the fbi for literally discovering a needle in a hay stack. >> reporter: federal prosecutors say the suspect was under watch of authorities for months after he posted material on the internet relating to violent jihad and the killing of americans. >> they went undercover by pretending to be terrorist colleagues. who could help him in his plans to carry out an attack. >> reporter: authorities say daoud allegedly drafted a list of approximately 29 potential targets including military recruiting centers, bars, malls and other tourist attractions in the chicago area. but at no time, authorities say, did he pose a real threat to the public. prosecutors are expected to outline more details at a hearing tomorrow. meanwhile the suspect remains in custody and he, too, is expected to appear at the hearing. alex? >> all right, michelle franzen, many thanks. >>> heading overseas. more dramatic turns on a number of fronts. first to afghanistan. four americans are dead after another so-called insider attack. a member of the afghan security f

that i am comfortable that the secretary of state, the secretary of defense, the fbi, promptly launched a thorough and searching investigation on the ground in benghazi to learn exactly what happened and what was a chaotic and confusing situation. and i am confident that we continue to have a leadership role in the world as the president laid out today in front of the united nations, rooted in american values, but that will not louis lambist jihadist terrorists to push us out of the region. >> so when you say you're confident in what is happening on the ground, let me put the question directly to you, then. why is that when cnn was in the consulate days after the horrible attack, they found that the -- the diary of ambassador stevens' thoughts and his fears. and not t u.s. investigators. why weren't they the ones who found something like that, which was -- was just lying there? >> that's an excellent question. we did not get briefed on the specifics of cnn's acquisition and use of the private diary of ambassador stevens. that wasn't one of the topics on which we were briefed. that does

and until the f.b.i. identified everyone involved and in the custody of the united states. this is while our foreign policy would be determined by half a dozen unruly people anywhere in the world. i've seen unworkable and unwise legislation before. this may win the prize. it would be a colossal waste of f.b.i. resources be impossible to implement and those in this country who believe in freedom of speech are we really going to fill up our prison with thousands of foreigners including those who engage in peaceful demonstrations because it includes them. are we really going to cut off aid to the government of egypt which has reaffirmed its peace agreement with israel, sent troops against the egyptian extremists in the sinai deploy police to protect the u.s. embassy and is negotiating an agreement to reform its economy. are we also going to cut off aid to israel, which we do, of course. so mr. president i ask my full statement be placed in the record. like so many republicans and democrats who have spoken against this, it makes no sense. the presiding officer: without objection, the full statem
the filmmaker's name is nakoula basseley nakoula. the fbi says the agent has spoken with him in the last 24 hours. that name is very important. much more on the film and why it matters later in the program. but the group loosely affiliated with al qaeda in libya that has been accused of playing a role in tuesday's deadly attack on the american consulate in benghazi has just issued a statent denying responsibility. it's an important thing to say given that they haveuickly claimed responsibility for other attacks, including on american interests and on the red cross. libyan prime minister tells cnn at least one person has been arrested in conjunction with the killings of the american ambassador chris steven's and three embassy staff members. we have more information for you tonight about who those people are. glenn dougherty was a former navy s.e.a.l. working as a specialist in libya. sean smith was a state department computer expert. and, of course, chris steven's was the u.s. ambassador to libya. the fourth victim is another security officer who has not been publicly identified tonight. >>>

of this on friday by saying, well, there is an fbi investigation going on. we are not going to comment on it any further. that lasted all the way until sunday, but i think really reporters -- lou: when susan rice major appearance. >> right. reporters have an obligation to find out what went on here. we have embassies all over the region. we have tens of thousands of private citizens who are in jeopardy. we need to know what the facts are. lou: there is something going on here that is peculiar, unique, unprecedented. and that is a white house that seems to be focusing primarily on representing the united states and facts abroad that are not facts at all and, in fact, are tortured by the witnesses in been gauzy by intelligence sources. there is not a single source as far as i know that corroborates what the united nations ambassador is telling the american people and what a white house is telling the american people. >> also, it is all because of this silly movie on youtube which is hardly a movie. a bunch of guys who have glue around years and this tells pretending. lou: let me corroboree what yo

, national counterterrorism center director matthew olson and deputy fbi director kevin perkins testifying in the senate hearing that began in the past hour. director olson just gave an update on the investigation into last week's attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. >> the best information we have now, the facts we have now indicate this was an opportunistic attack on our embassy. the attack began and evolved and escalated over several hours. i said our embassy. our diplomatic post in benghazi. it evolved and escalated over several hours. it appears that individuals who were certainly well armed seized on the opportunity presented as the events unfolded that evening into the morning hours. >> well armed, opportunistic attack on the diplomatic post on 9/11. we'll continue to follow that hearing and bring you any important information that comes out of that. >>> new outrage in the muslim world today after a french magazine published cartoons ridiculing the prophet mohammed. security has been stepped up at the ma
